Precision VIR Announces Availability of Varithena® as a Non-Surgical Option for Patients with Symptoms Related to or Caused by Varicose Veins

The Cutting-Edge Procedure can Reduce a Variety of Symptoms and Improve Vein Appearance

Dallas, TX (April 16, 2018) – The doctors at Precision Vascular & Interventional recently announced they incorporated Varithena® (polidocanol injectable foam) into the growing list of superior vein treatment options for their patients. Varithena is a non-surgical prescription medicine many believe can be a game-changer when it comes to treating varicose veins, specifically in combating the symptoms of heaviness, achiness, swelling, throbbing and itching.

“Precision VIR is delighted to provide patients with this non-surgical option,” Dr. Danny Chan said on behalf of himself, Dr. Jaryd Stein, and their associate vein specialists. “We have been specially trained in using Varithena. Treatment is minimally-invasive—which means no incision is required.”

Dr. Chan added, “The Varithena procedure usually takes less than one hour, and patients may resume light activities as quickly as the same day of treatment.”

More About Varicose Veins and Varithena

Varicose veins are enlarged bulging veins usually found above the surface of the skin on the legs and are a telltale sign of vein disease, where vein walls and valves have become weakened and eventually interrupt normal blood flow. These veins can range from the most common spider and varicose veins to skin breakdown and venous ulcers. More than 20 million Americans suffer from vein disease or venous disorders.

Sadly, vein disease does not cure itself and can get worse if left untreated. Luckily, there are a variety of treatment options available for patients with venous conditions, including Varithena, Sclerotherapy, ClosureFast, and Microphlebectomy.

Varithena (polidocanol injectable foam) is the latest option. It is administered through a catheter or by direct injection into the malfunctioning vein. The foam fills the desired section of the vein, and the diseased vein collapses. Blood flow then shifts to healthier veins nearby. This procedure does not require incisions. While the doctor usually numbs the injection site, no additional anesthesia is required.

Varithena treats a wide range of varicose veins in the GSV system, including:

• Tortuous (twisted) veins

• Veins above and below the knee

• Veins with small, medium, and large diameters

• Veins previously treated with other methods

Varithena® is a registered trademark of Provensis Ltd, a BTG International group company.

Super Rugby: Reports suggest Sunwolves out after this season

Mar 21, 2019

SYDNEY — Super Rugby's governing body plans to issue a statement on Friday over the future of the 15-team competition with speculation that the Tokyo-based Sunwolves will be cut after just three years in the tournament. Australian media on Wednesday reported the decision had already been made, with suggestions that the competition will become a 14-team, single division tournament. Currently there are three five-team conferences, forcing at least one team to have a bye each weekend. "SANZAAR and its stakeholders will not be making any comment on Super Rugby until the statement has been released," SANZAAR said in a brief...

Bottas, version 2019, has breakthrough win at Australian GP

Mar 21, 2019

MELBOURNE, Australia — The 2019 version of Valtteri Bottas is leading a Formula One championship for the first time. Sure, he's only one Grand Prix into the season, he concedes, but it was a big one. Bottas started from the front row of the grid for the first time at the Australian Grand Prix — formerly his least favorite F1 circuit — and beat Mercedes teammate Lewis Hamilton to the first corner. He never let Hamilton back into the race, a striking contrast with 2018. He was the loyal No. 2 at Mercedes last season and helped his teammate to...

Max power: Verstappen gets podium for Red Bull and Honda

Mar 21, 2019

MELBOURNE, Australia — With one overtaking maneuver and consistent speed, Red Bull driver Max Verstappen showed that the 2019 Formula One season is unlikely to descend into another two-team race. Verstappen overtook two-time defending Australian Grand Prix champion Sebastian Vettel on the outside just after halfway through the season-opening race on Sunday and kept powering away from the Ferrari ace to finish third. It was his sixth consecutive F1 podium finish, and delivered automaker Honda its first since 2008. Most of the talk after winter testing was about the pace of the Ferrari cars, and if that would be enough...

Ferrari misses out on a podium place at F1 Australian GP

Mar 21, 2019

MELBOURNE, Australia — The Ferraris were touted as the fastest cars on the F1 circuit when Sebastian Vettel arrived with the intention of winning his third consecutive Australian Grand Prix title. That would have equaled the great Michael Schumacher's mark in Melbourne. They'll leave without a podium place and, worryingly for the Scuderia faithful, after conceding a 57-second margin to Valtteri Bottas, who led Lewis Hamilton in a 1-2 finish for Mercedes on Sunday. More concerning for Ferrari was the 35-second gap to Red Bull driver Max Verstappen, who overtook Vettel on the outside and finished in third place. Four-time...

Bottas beats Mercedes teammate Hamilton to win Australian GP

Mar 21, 2019

MELBOURNE, Australia — Valterri Bottas can't really explain how he got from playing the loyal lieutenant to Lewis Hamilton and failing to win a race last season, to upstaging his Mercedes teammate for victory in Formula One's season-opening Australian Grand Prix. A lot of soul-searching over the winter break, some rally car driving and a few drinking sessions helped transform Bottas' approach to racing in 2019, with an immediate and profound result. The 29-year-old Finn surged from No. 2 on the grid to beat five-time world champion Hamilton to the first corner, and stayed in front of his teammate the...
